Are you tired of fighting the same zombies, skeletons, and creepers? Are you tired of the same old vanilla Minecraft biomes? Are you tired of feeling like your Minecraft world is desolate and empty? Well, this post might have some mods for you!
I'm going to go over two mods in this post (I have to make up for last week, right?). The first one is Biomes O' Plenty. Biomes O' Plenty adds approximately 80 new biomes and 12 new sub-biomes. You heard me correctly: 80 new biomes! Redwood forests, wastelands, and wetlands just to name a few. And it doesn't just add them to the 'overworld'. New biomes show up in the Nether as well! Also, the mod adds in a whole new dimension called the Promised Land. The Promised Land represents the sky lands that Mojang almost released instead of the End.
The other mod is Mo' Creatures. Mo' Creatures breathes new life into the Minecraft world. All sorts of beautiful, crazy, and dangerous creatures are added into the world. There are bugs, birds, and snakes. There is the fast and deadly silver skeleton. There are the incredible dangerous werewolves. There are also the peaceful ents. In all, Mo' Creatures adds in 30+ more mobs. I would personally recommend reading up on the mod before trying to play with it. The number of new creatures can be very overwhelming!
Here's a brief video of a world a friend and I generated. A number of different Biomes O' Plenty biomes and Mo' Creatures creatures are shown. In the end, we ended up junking the world for the other, but it might be fun to watch me freak out when a snake attacks me.
